Hello Rhaenyra! It's BookDinosaur here with the review I owe you for entering my Songfic Challenge. Apologies for the lateness, please forgive me?

So, reviewing! I love James/Lily as a paring, so obviously I was going to love this unless it was truly terrible, which this is clearly not. :D

I think your use of first person narration was very effective for this story - first person is something I'm seeing less of nowadays and I've always liked that when done right, it can give fantastic insights into the characters' mind, and I think you brought that aspect of it out really well, kudos!

Now the song (this had to come up eventually, ahaha), I think you picked well. The story and the song seemed to match each other, and I hadn't heard of the song before I listened to it while I was reading this but I can definitely see how the two go together, tonally.

As I've already said, I love Lily/James as a pairing and this definitely didn't disappoint! You didn't fall into the old trap of making him super arrogant and cocky - I mean, yes, he's confident, but he did grow up during his Seventh Year, I think everyone had to. And Lily was a little more serious in this story than I usually see her portrayed, which was a nice change. The two of them together really did seem to fit, as well; it's not like you were just saying that they fit and we the readers had to believe you, the way the two of them interacted made it very believable.

This was an adorable, fluffy story, and I'm really glad I got the chance to read it! Thank you for entering my challenge and be sure to keep an eye out for the results. :D

Author's Response: Hello! Don't worry about the lateness, real life has a tendency to get in the way. I'm glad you enjoyed the story and the pairing. Your comments about the characterization made me smile. Thank you for reviewing and for the challenge! =)
